The optimistic, enthusiastic spirit of entrepreneur and philanthropist Jim Moran was alive and well at a ribbon cutting for Florida State University’s new entrepreneurship-focused Jim Moran Building, and so were his words.

Moran famously once said, “The future belongs to those who prepare for it.”

FSU is preparing an exciting new entrepreneurial future for students and small business owners thanks to a transformational $100 million gift from Moran’s wife, Jan, and the Jim Moran Foundation.
